He was also a ballet dancer and had a great interest in the performing arts. He designed costumes for plays performed by UCT and other performing art bodies. The painting on offer here is of a costume he designed for a production of the play FETE CHAMPETRE which was performed in Cape Town. His artworks have shown a steady (and recent dramatic) increase in value. This painting is AN EXCELLENT PIECE OF INVESTMENT ART. There is much information on the artist on the internet on sites such as Artprice.com and those of the top South African art auction sites.
